Been Farming Long?
Whether you are running a fourth-generation family farm or looking to invest your inheritance in an organic winery or an equestrian venture, our attorneys offer practical legal support for agriculture and equestrian related concerns. We have been assisting New Jersey’s farmers and ranchers for decades. In one instance that we are particularly proud of – we took a case to the state Supreme Court and won, establishing an important precedent protecting a farmers’ “right to farm.”
Commercial success in any field of agriculture these days means exploring your diversification options. Opportunities abound. Diversification may include leaning into farmer’s markets, opening your fields to u-pick events for families, establishing farm stands, or opening a tasting room at your winery. Sustainable practices can be more complex than you realize. Obtaining certifications is time consuming and costly.
Each venture comes with a unique set of regulations or emerging regulation, as is the case for investing in a cannabis growing venture. While potentially profitable, New Jersey is still establishing cannabis regulations, which are subject to change. Let an experienced team guide your process.
